Hobsons Bay Chess Club is the biggest and best chess club in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Currently we have around 20 members that play regularly on Tuesday nights from 7.45pm onwards. Whilst the atmosphere at this chess club is relaxed and friendly the competition is very tough and if you are serious about chess this is the place for you. We have members ranging in strength from top 100 in Victoria to regular club strength. We do welcome everyone whether they are master or beginner and also cater for those who like to play speed chess. However most of the tournaments held are of a slow time control so you can take time with your moves. Hobsons Bay Chess Club also has a thriving junior section which is run under the expert guidance of member Tony Davis. The benefits of chess are many and well known so what better way to improve your child's academic performance while they are having fun than to join Hobsons Bay Chess Club? If you are unsure by all means come in, have a look for yourself and chat to our friendly members.
